Bouygues UK marks pivotal milestone at Kingsway project site with topping out ceremony

Bouygues UK marks pivotal milestone at Kingsway project site with topping out ceremony

Bouygues UK has welcomed representatives of Swansea Council, the UK Government and other project partners on site at 71/72 The Kingsway to mark the official ‘topping out’ for the major five-storey office development in Swansea city centre. Located at the former Oceana nightclub site, when finished the building will house up to 600 workers, will be operationally carbon zero and is worth £32.6 million a year to Swansea’s economy. Bouygues UK’s Operations Director for Wales and the South West, Stephen Davies showed the client delegation which included Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Wales James Davies and Swansea Council leader Rob Stewart, around the construction site, where five floors and two basement levels have now been completed. Swansea Council is developing the project and it is being built by Bouygues UK. It is part-funded by the £1.3 billion Swansea Bay City Deal. The scheme, earmarked for completion in early 2024, will include 114,000 square feet of commercial floor space with flexible co-working and office opportunities for businesses in sectors like tech, digital and the creative industries. Other features of the new development include a roof terrace, a new link between The Kingsway and Oxford Street, and balconies overlooking the city centre and Swansea Bay. The building will include solar panels on top of the building, as well as heat recovery systems to minimise energy use. It will also include 69 bike spaces and electric bike charging as well as extensive shower and changing facilities. Stephen Davies said: “Bouygues UK is very proud to be working with Swansea Council on this landmark project for the city. It was a pleasure to welcome to the site so they could see the brilliant progress that is being made. “Sustainability is hugely important to Bouygues UK and it’s wonderful to work on such an innovative and environmentally-friendly building. The fact that the building, when finished, will operate at net zero is very important to us as a business, as it’s our ambition to achieve this on all of our sites and builds. “71/72 The Kingsway is a key part of the history and infrastructure of the city centre, and this landmark building certainly fills the need for high quality office accommodation. The mix of commercial and office space is going to be a great asset to Swansea, along with the other ongoing regeneration projects.” Cllr Rob Stewart, Swansea Council Leader, said: “The topping-out event marks another milestone for the construction of this landmark scheme, which is needed due to the limited amount of high-quality office accommodation in Swansea.  Visiting the site has enabled us not just to see for ourselves the progress that’s already been made, but also to learn from our main scheme contractor Bouygues UK about some of the exciting digital tools soon to be used as part of the project as the development gathers even more pace. “Once complete, this scheme will offer the kind of modern, flexible office space we know our businesses need to thrive, particularly in the digital, tech and creative industry sectors where an agile workspace with networking opportunities and high-quality digital connectivity is so important. The scheme has attracted significant attention from potential tenants, and it will also benefit other city centre businesses by generating more footfall and spending.” Wales Office Minister James Davies said: “I was delighted to attend this exciting milestone in the construction of 71/72 Kingsway in Swansea. The UK Government is proud of our investment in the Swansea Bay City Deal which, along with our partners, has built this brilliant new facility for the city. “The UK Government is focused on creating jobs and spreading prosperity in Wales and this development will do exactly that by providing space for 600 jobs in growing sectors.” Building, Design & Construction Magazine | The Choice of Industry Professionals

86 Deansgate Manchester Scheme Launched to Market

86 Deansgate Manchester Scheme Launched to Market

CBRE Selling Prominent City Centre Office and Leisure Investment 86 Deansgate, a prominent office and leisure development, has been launched to market by the Investment Properties team at CBRE Manchester, acting on behalf of Swiss Life Asset Managers UK. CBRE is seeking offers in excess of £9.55m, reflecting a “topped up” net initial yield of 10% and a low capital value of £195 per sq ft. Situated on the main Manchester City Centre thoroughfare, 86 Deansgate has 48,967 sq ft of commercial space. The five upper floors feature open plan, Grade A offices with flexible floor-plates from 2,100 sq ft to 8,600 sq ft, with two ground floor prime retail units and a basement containing 19 parking spaces. Multi-let to a range of professional office occupiers including Reed Recruitment, Slater Heelis and Resource Solutions, the property also has a vibrant ground floor presence with leisure operators Las Iguanas and Yours Restaurant & Bar in occupation. The 12 occupiers provide excellent diversification of income, with 63% derived from the offices and 37% from the leisure. Contracted passing income of £749,528 per annum reflects an average of £20.82 per sq ft over the offices and £30.81 per sq ft over the leisure. With the current passing rents reflecting 50% discount to prime new build space, investors have opportunities to add significant value by reinvigorating 19,354 sq ft of available office space, as well as through active asset management with the existing tenants.  Additionally, historic planning permission could be implemented to create a two-storey ‘glass box’ extension to add a further 14,000 sq ft of Grade A space on 6th and 7th floors. With immediate access to Exchange Square, home to Harvey Nicholls and Selfridges, 86 Deansgate is in an area which is set to undergo significant investment and development as well as being part of the St Mary’s Parsonage Strategic Regeneration Framework. Will Kennon, Executive Director, CBRE Investment Properties team commented: “The surrounding micro-location of Deansgate and St Mary’s Parsonage is on the cusp of some of the most exciting new commercial-led development with schemes such as; Albert Bridge House (by Oval), Alberton (by Bruntwood), 39 Deansgate (by Candour) together with Property Alliance Group’s extensive mixed use redevelopment at Renaissance undoubtedly extending the city’s prime office core.  86 Deansgate, which sits centrally in between these developments, is therefore set to be a major beneficiary, and we would expect the asset to benefit from substantial occupier demand and rental growth over the coming cycle.” Building, Design & Construction Magazine | The Choice of Industry Professionals

It is an intelligent building and utilizes top grade integrated technology to successfully create a healthy and inspirational working environment, including using space occupation analysis systems to maximize space utility and energy consumption.

It has a BREEAM score of 70% The building is located on one of the UK’s best commercial hubs, adjacent to Birmingham International Airport and Railway Station and close to the NEC, Resorts World and the Birmingham Interchange at HS2, currently under construction. Once complete HS2 will cut the Birmingham to London journey time from 1 hour 21 minutes to 52 minutes. The new workspace is designed to be a modern, flexible base for the area’s professional and financial businesses, and will offer brand new: It is the second flexible workspace that Orega has launched in Birmingham. It already offers space at The Colmore Building, 20 Colmore Circus, Queensway.The company now offers flex space from 25 locations across the UK and is the UK’s leading provider of flexible workspace under Management Agreements (as opposed to leases). Ben Hutchen, Real Estate Director at Orega, commented: “Ingenuity House is a unique building, which will attract a lot of interest from businesses who are increasingly looking for a flexible way to occupy property but also require high quality “state of the art” space. The popularity of flex space has been growing in Birmingham. According to CBRE*, the city now has 650,000 sq ft of flex space, an increase of 37% on 2022. Average occupancy rates in the city are high- at 85%.” “We are also delighted to have secured an early pre completion letting to a prime financial services business, which clearly demonstrates the quality of ‘flex’ demand. We are thrilled to have captured this within our joint venture agreement on behalf of abrdn.” Les Ross, Fund Manager, abrdn said, “We look forward to working with Orega on this new partnership, Ingenuity House is a high-quality asset with strong ESG credentials. We are committed to reduce the environmental impact of our buildings and we also have a responsibility to investors who want to ensure the way they invest is environmentally relevant. Given the high specification of this building we expect to attract significant interest from occupiers.” Will Kinnear of HEWN who advised abrdn in the letting to Orega commented, “The flexible workspace sector is flourishing in the regions, as hybrid working becomes business as usual. By their very nature, flexible workspaces are flexible and responsive to market conditions. abrdn understand this and the partnership with Orega, to provide a high-quality flex offering alongside a traditional office product will ensure that Ingenuity House can meet all demand in the area. This site is a gamechanger for the Midlands and the flexible workspace market.” CBRE’s out-of-town specialist, Michelle Mills, is retained by abrdn to lease the remainder of available space with colleague Dan White, head of flex advisory, Midlands and South, acting for Orega and the new occupier. Dan White said: “It’s no secret that take-up of flex product in Birmingham city centre is high, but the out-of-town market is under served. We’re thrilled to have helped Orega get a foothold here, with the pre-let demonstrating that the demand is there.” Michelle Mills added: “The addition of flex space at Ingenuity House will be a draw not only to footloose occupiers looking for high quality accommodation, but also to larger tenants who wish to take dedicated space but can scale-up as they grow within the building. It undoubtedly further boosts the appeal of this high spec and prominently located landmark office space.” Floorplates from 19,000 sq ft – 30,813 sq ft – the biggest along the M42 corridor – remain available at Ingenuity House.
